Course List of Hokkaido Summer Institute
A course on Advanced Marine Microbiology will be provided for discussing the future directions of Marine Microbiology studies in the post-genome era. We have invited Dr. Stefan Sievert, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
The goals of this course are to provide knowledge of applied economics and environmental economics, and students will understand how economics is applied in the sustainable agricultural use of natural resource management. This course shares the researchers’ experience of interdisciplinary work that integrates natural and social science. Students understand the policy rational of natural resource use in terms of environmental economics.
Bioactive natural product have been an important source for drug development. The aim of this course is to understand the latest structure elucidation methods and biosynthetic studies of bioactive natural products isolated from the marine organisms, microorganisms, and terrestrial plants.

The purpose of this class is to provide basic ideas and skills ethically to conduct research and other research-related activities. Students are expected to acquire those ideas and skills through case studies and group discussion.
Maintenance of the biodiversity is essential for the sustainable production of food and other agricultural products and the benefits. Outcomes of cutting edge researches on conservation of biodiversity, domestication of plants and animals, exploitation of biological resources and multi-functionality in agriculture system are presented in this course.
Through invited lecturers by representatives of top universities, governmental institute or national academy in several Asian countries, introducing the latest status of the space development and the potential needs for remote-sensing in their countries.
New breeding techniques have been developed, some of which are controversial on their safety. This class let you think how we exploit them. This class also provides lectures on useful traits of plants for breeding, and scientific writing in English.
Through the spectral measurement of plants in lab and natural vegetation, and its analysis, you will learn the importance of remote-sensing and how to utilize optical remote-sensing data obtained by satellite, airplane and drone.
During this two-week course, students study ecosystems of Tokachi River through fieldwork and lectures. This course will focus on how we monitor and improve the environmental burdens caused by human activities through the PARE chain.
[Note: this course is taught concurrently with “Seminar I for PARE: Population-Activities-Resources-Environments Chain”； students must enroll in both courses.]

In this course, popular time series models, such as AR（I）MA, VAR, VECM and GARCH, are introduced. The lectures deal with a mixture of theory and worked out examples, while the computer sessions explain how to fit these models to real data.
